Volunteer for Earth Day on Saturday, April 21st!

Calling all earth-lovers of Monterey Bay!

Join Save Our Shores on Saturday, April 21st to clean up your communities AND your planet at one of four Earth Day cleanups in Santa Cruz and Monterey:

  • San Lorenzo River Cleanup at Water Street Bridge in Santa Cruz: 10am-1pm
  • Beach Cleanup at Cowell/Main Beach in Santa Cruz: 10am-Noon
  • Beach Cleanup at Manresa State Beach, sponsored by Nordic Naturals: 10am-Noon
  • Beach Cleanup at Del Monte Beach in Monterey: 10am-Noon

Earth Day 2012 boasts more SOS cleanups than ever before, making this the single-largest Earth Day cleanup to hit Monterey Bay! In 2011, 300 volunteers removed over 2,400 pounds of pollution from just two cleanup locations in Santa Cruz County. Thank you, volunteers, you rule!

For more information visit our Earth Day page or contact Andrew at 831.462.5660 ext. 3, or volunteer@saveourshores.org.

All cleanup materials will be provided but volunteers are always encouraged to bring their own reusable buckets, bags, water bottles, and gloves to help decrease trash.

SOS is also coordinating volunteerism at the Santa Cruz Earth Day Festival in San Lorenzo Park from 11am-5pm. The Santa Cruz Earth Day Festival is a free, family-friendly event organized by Ecology Action, the County of Santa Cruz, and the City of Santa Cruz. Those interested in volunteering for the Festival must register online here...

The 2012 Festival is Sponsored by Santa Cruz Community Credit Union, New Leaf Community Markets, Nordic Naturals, Ecology Action, Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County, Save Our Shores, the City of Santa Cruz, Resource Conservation District Santa Cruz County, Lollytree Toys, Blue Heron Design Group, Community Printers, Santa Cruz Weekly, and the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

Thanks to everyone involved for making Earth Day 2012 a community event to remember!
